  • Wish list - show flight track (not playback)

    Would it be possible to show a flight track in much the same way as Marine Traffic plots a ships position

    Clicking on the flight would show the whole flight track (maybe use check boxes to display several flights together - useful for when a flight has 'segments' where it has popped in and out of coverage) with dots where info is available - hovering the pointer would show the info at that point.

    see example below for the Cunard Queen Victoria sailing into Cadiz


    Advantage: Quicker display - you don't have to play the whole flight back - just load a kml file into google maps / google earth

    Disadvantage: Have to think about the pilots eye view movie (would it be a static image for the place?)
